Note to gadget designers: Wrap your next product in leather, write something in a fake language on it, call it steampunk, and nerds will pay twice as much for it. We're in the middle of some sort of steampunk renaissance, what with the steampunk office, the steampunk monitor, and now the steampunk scanner here to make us feel like we live in an anime movie.

I have got to admit, however, that this scanner is downright beautiful. Fabricator Doc Datamancer plans to offer a small batch of these "Opti-Transcription" scanners in the near future, so get those credit cards warmed and ready.

"We're in the middle of some sort of steampunk renaissance"

I think there are alot of people that were always into this style and applying it to various things. Because a few items catch of the eye of Gizmodo and cause a few posts, I wouldn't classify that as an overall "renaissance". I've seen plenty of posts on items that have been around for awhile (single blade cieling fan comes to mind) that are given the "this is new and wild!" treatment here.

Given, Gizmodo is a good place to catch up on things you may have missed...regardless of timeliness.
